ArtStorm Graffiti Art Keeps Youth in the Studio and Off the Streets

-


Here at Boingo, we’re not just about gadgets and Wi-Fi — we also dabble in the enjoyment of art. The graffiti painting above is the first thing you see when you enter our lobby in Los Angeles. Several more aerosol-painted canvases adorn the walls throughout our office, infusing the work environment with color and creativity. The artists behind these works? Teenagers and young adults (no, we don’t feel humbled or anything ;)) who are part of the ArtStorm Art Community, a non-profit organization that provides young artists with the materials and studio space to create their work. By encouraging and nurturing the creative endeavors of young folks, ArtStorm keeps them off the streets and away from crime. And that’s why we folks here at Boingo feel extra good about the masterpieces around the office — as a patron, we’re contributing to the funds necessary for art supplies, studio space, and mentorship programs at ArtStorm.

Check out this video tour of the fabulous paintings around our office. Bonus: Boingo team members share their interpretations of the artwork.
